What is the face you show to the world? And what does the inside look like? Is there a space for your family and your pets? Sometimes you might feel shy, worried, excited, calm or a mixture of lots of emotions? Can you draw or list these on the inside of your portrait?

To celebrate the start of the school holidays and our A Picture of Health exhibition, Bristol art duo, Let’s Make Art, guide children in making a standing cardboard portrait of themselves, with an interior scene, as well as an outward showing persona.

All you need and instructions are here – Arnolfini and Let’s Make Art – The Hidden Self– with this helpful video below…

There will be another video tutorial in January and February 2021.
